• Zoe commented on the post, fun 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Hah! Fun. Flagrant. At least one person ends up isolated when there’s fun involved. It’s hard to keep the energy of fun-filled situations equitable. Fun is more akin to mania than utopia.

    I hope someday something inspires me to dismantle the floorboards beneath my feet and hide something precious down there; even better if I find something precious. There must be a lot of good bits of debris, or at least it will be peaceful.

  • Zoe commented on the post, tour 1 week, 3 days ago

    An endless American highway – scuttling clouds the color of milk gone off – a bus fuming – its worn-out parts are vocal and inside they blast music and shout to drown out the mechanic noises…

    Criss-cross forks-and-knives mark the table like insignias on playing cards… Each criss-cross shines slightly differently; the chandeliers swinging mysteriously overhead make the utensils shiver.

  • Zoe commented on the post, bedside 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    The glass of water is filled with lemon seeds. It’s an icon on the bedside table. Why does it have so much personality? I sip it carefully throughout the night.

  • Zoe commented on the post, flex 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Flex. Spread. Pull. My arms. My legs. Taut. Heaving. Taut. Tension. Taut. Deflating. My muscles. Feel them! Aren’t they nice? Flexing, spreading pulling, heaving, deflating, taut taut taut until not.

  • Zoe commented on the post, bell 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Elle est tres, tres belle… Sometimes, not always. Eye crust glitters in the morning when the sun hits her face and the silver bells that hang in her window, attached to the string that binds her curtain.

    The market was bustling, of course. The market was battered by fabrics flapping in the wind, like a thousand tiny, confused sails.

  • Zoe commented on the post, leaving 3 months ago

    We wave like fools – foolish if only because we’re trying to amp up our Care by moving the air around us fast enough – as if we’re trying to break certain physical and elemental laws with our love and prove its eternity and shift everything in our favor.

    The funniest cut was made into his hair… A style I hadn’t seen before… I wondered what men’s inclinations were, for choosing certain styles, aside from sexual ones…

  • Zoe commented on the post, crafty 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I stitched her up halfheartedly; I moaned as I stitched, moaned warm, wilting air into her sole.

    And maybe there’s a million people singing shoeshine blues to no one that they’ve ever met before

  • Zoe commented on the post, deserted 8 months, 3 weeks ago

    And when you’re lost it’s almost impossible not to feel, increasingly, like you’ve been deserted. You’ve left yourself behind and everyone else has lost track of you too; when lost you get a bit far and beyond from everyone and everything and your own sense of time and space.

  • Zoe commented on the post, forklift 1 year, 4 months ago

    I always wondered if I could scramble a home together, Tetris-style, using forklifts as elevators and… Well, I’d love to keep one outside of my apartment to hoist goodies and friends up to my room, garbage and garbage people down.

  • Zoe commented on the post, nutrients 1 year, 5 months ago

    I either lack or I am gorged; food doesn’t have a consistent value in my life, maybe because it cannot speak to sway me any which way. Some buns speak though. Some cuts of meat. Hiss on my tongue.

  • Zoe commented on the post, loud 1 year, 8 months ago

    Gosh, the trucks really do know how to rumble at 3 in the morning, rumble loud and long and stir the mist in the air so it shakes like jello, you can see it clearly… I find comfort in the sound even when it annoys me profoundly.

  • Zoe commented on the post, beard 1 year, 8 months ago

    Bears… I don’t care for bearded men necessarily… They get in the way of kissing. I already have so much hair so then there’s too much hair in the mix…

  • Zoe commented on the post, resident 1 year, 8 months ago

    Our resident Animal Man, resident Artist, resident cyborg of a man, made of swearing, sass, beers, and concoctions of powders, fungi, and slick ideas.

    Don’t speak
    You know just what you’re sayin’…
    And I don’t need no reason…
    Don’t tell me cuz it hurst… !
    … Did I get that right? Are songs people say are about cheating really about that or just about menstrual cramps or your boyfriend not wanting to have sex with you on your period? I think everyone secretly knows that there’s no such…[Read more]

  • Zoe commented on the post, footsteps 1 year, 8 months ago

    The woods rattled with clacking beaks and seeds rushing toward the forest floor, smacking leaves and branches as they fell. On the ground, meanwhile, everything else was soft and silent.
